Days Numbered for Nigeria's Bandits, Kidnappers

Nigerian President Muhammadu Buhari has tasked the army with flushing out bandits and kidnappers who are forcing villagers and other individuals to live in fear as they strike with impunity, leaving death and destruction in their wake. Kaduna State, Plateau State, Niger State and others, have seen banditry escalate over the past few months and an ad-hoc committee on Nigeria Security Challenges is urging the government to implement some of its recommendations to bring stability back to the country.
